France Beats Greece 75-71, Evanthia Maltsi Scores 28

first_imgEndene Miyem scored 20 points and Sandrine Gruda hit a tie-breaking basket with 36 seconds left to help France beat Greece 75-71 on Sunday.With the game tied at 69 and both teams struggling to score, Gruda hit a shot to give France (2-0) the lead.Greece (0-2) turned the ball over on its next possession and Miyem hit two free throws with 9 seconds left to make it a two-possession game. Evanthia Maltsi, who scored 28 points to lead Greece, missed a 3-pointer and France held on.The win sets up a showdown for France with Canada for the top spot in the group.STEWART, WILSON PROPEL US TO 100-88 WIN OVER CHINABy DOUG FEINBERG , AP Basketball WriterSANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Spain (AP) — After a quiet first half, Breanna Stewart felt she needed to be more assertive on both ends of the court.She certainly made her presence felt in the final 20 minutes.Stewart scored 21 of her 23 points in the second half and A’ja Wilson added 20 points to help the United States beat China 100-88 on Sunday in the second day of the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup.“I needed to be more aggressive. There were a few things that I could have done better — defense and rebounding. Focus on that and the offense comes,” Stewart said.China trailed only 36-35 midway through the second quarter as the U.S. was still trying to figure out a lineup that worked on offense and defense. The Americans then closed the half on a 12-4 burst. Wilson had six points during the run. Layshia Clarendon, who played a few minutes in the first game, also provided a spark off the bench in the spurt. She had two points, two assists and two rebounds.The Chinese team hung around in the third quarter and trailed 60-54 before Stewart, who played in China the past few winters, took over. She scored nine of the next 11 points and China couldn’t get within seven the rest of the way.“She was trailing a lot, and obviously the defense sucked down. The post players did a great job rim running,” U.S. coach Dawn Staley said. “That left Stewie wide open at the top of key and she took advantage of them time and again. That’s what we come to expect, Stewie like things. We needed her to be that way to give us some separation and widen our lead in the third quarter.”The Americans were still missing Brittney Griner, who suffered a slight sprain of her right ankle in practice Friday. Griner said after the win over Senegal she would have played if it was an elimination game. China was able to exploit the lack of Griner with its own 6-foot-9 center Han Xu.Han showed an impressive array of post moves as well as a deft touch from 10 feet. The 18-year-old finished with 20 points and left to a warm ovation from the crowd with 20 seconds left.“Coach encouraged us to play with confidence. The U.S. is a very good team. We just went out and enjoyed ourselves,” said China guard Shao Ting, who had 10 points.The Chinese team, which is the youngest in the tournament with the average age 23 years, lost to the U.S. by 43 points in the 2016 Olympics.The U.S. (2-0) hasn’t lost to China (1-1) in six meetings in the World Cup. The Americans won the first five meetings by an average of 25.8 points.The victory was the Americans’ 18th in a row in the tournament and 43rd in the past 44 games in the World Cup. The only blemish over the past 20 years was a loss to Russia in the semifinals of the 2006 World Cup. Sunday’s game came on the 12th anniversary of that loss.CHINA CONNECTION: Many of the U.S. players have competed in China in the offseason. Stewart, Griner, Morgan Tuck, Jewell Loyd and Tina Charles all have spent time there. Wilson will be headed there this year.“You’re having some of the top WNBA players going over there to China and showing them the standards of what we put ourselves through,” Stewart said.RECOVERING: Elena Delle Donne played only 3 ½ minutes on Sunday. She suffered a bone bruise in the WNBA playoffs and is still recovering. She said that she and Staley would talk before each game to discuss how she was feeling.Delle Donne said after the game the back to back was difficult.SCOREBOARD: It was a great day for Africa with both Senegal and Nigeria winning. It’s the first time in the history of the tournament that an African team won a pool play game, let alone two. Senegal beat Latvia 70-69 and Nigeria edged Turkey 74-68. In other games, Canada beat South Korea 82-63; Australia routed Argentina 84-43; Japan edged Belgium 77-75 in OT; France beat Greece 75-71 and Spain topped Puerto Rico 78-53.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris charged with drink driving

first_imgTottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been charged with drink driving, confirmed British police on Friday.Lloris, who captained France in their World Cup triumph in Russia last month, was stopped by police in central London early Friday morning.”A man has been charged following a routine patrol stop in Gloucester Place, W1,” Metropolitan Police said in a statement.”Hugo Lloris, 31, of East Finchley was charged with drink driving on Friday, 24 August. He has been bailed to return to Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 11 September.”According to the laws of United Kingdom, drink driving could result in three months’ imprisonment, a fine up to 2500 pounds or a possible driving ban.He is however, expected to start for Spurs against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday.Lloris has been a vital cog in Tottenham’s rise to prominence in the last couple of years and will again play a key part this season. Spurs have won their first two matches of the season and will fancy their chances against Mourinho’s United, who faltered against Brighton last week at the Falmer.Pochettino’s side have begun the new campaign well with wins over Newcastle United and Fulham and while they didn’t make any moves in the transfer window they have kept together their impressive squad.The Spurs trio of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen will fancy their chances against a shaky United defence, which was all over the place in the south coast last week.last_img read more

Monte Carlo Masters 2019: Rafael Nadal knocked out by Fognini in semi-final

first_imgRafael Nadal suffered a shock 6-4 6-2 semi-final defeat against flamboyant Italian Fabio Fognini at the Monte Carlo Masters on Saturday, showing rare signs of weakness five weeks before the French Open.The 11-time champion’s loss ended a series of 25 consecutive sets won on his favourite clay as Fognini set up a final showdown against Serbian Dusan Lajovic.In windy conditions at the Monte Carlo Country Club, the 11-time French Open champion was overwhelmed by Fognini, who entered centre court with all guns blazing.Fognini’s unpredictability, added to that of the weather conditions, were eventually too much for the Spanish world number two who bowed out on the fourth match point.It was world number 18 Fognini’s fourth career win against Nadal in 15 encounters, the third on the slowest surface.Earlier, Lajovic reached his first Masters final when he mastered the windy conditions to beat Russian Daniil Medvedev 7-5 6-1.Lajovic trailed 3-0 and 5-1 in the opening set before going through the gears.The 10th-seeded Medvedev could not hold the pace as winds swept across centre court and Lajovic quickly moved 4-0 up in the second set against a frustrated opponent, who bowed out on the second match point.”It was an incredible match today,” said world number 48 Lajovic, the lowest-ranked player to reach the final here since Hicham Arazi in 2001.”I had the worst nightmare, falling down 5-1. But I won 10 games in a row, so I was able to find my rhythm and my game.”In windy conditions like today, it was impossible to play real tennis and in the end I was able to hit my forehands better than him. I’m still unaware of my achievement in Monte Carlo.”advertisementAlso Read | Monte Carlo Masters 2019: Novak Djokovic crashes out after shock quarter-final defeatAlso Read | Tennis: Prajnesh Gunneswaran rises to career-high ranking of 80Also Seelast_img read more

‘Lozano is ready for the Premier League’

Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move The former Pachuca star had already been generating transfer talk prior to this summer’s showpiece in Russia, with a 17-goal haul in an Eredivisie title triumph for PSV attracting interest from the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool.Mexico boss Osorio believes a highly-rated forward is ready to take another step up in his career, after just one season in the Netherlands, and feels Lozano would shine in the English top-flight.He told Sky Sports News: “I think Hirving, since he moved to PSV Eindhoven, I think he has made the next step up. He’s an unbelievable prospect.”His pace, his ability to take people on makes me believe that he is a player that will go very far, hopefully he can show that in the next game.”I just think that whoever takes a chance on him will do well. His pace and again his ability to take people on, he can play in any league and any place.”I think he will be able to – and he has the tools to play – in the Premier League.”Juan Carlos Osorio MexicoWhile Lozano has enhanced his reputation with a star showing in a global shop window, Osorio has also earned plenty of praise for his efforts.The 57-year-old pieced together plans to down Germany many months ago, with his tactics executed to perfection by an ambitious side hoping to go deep into a major international tournament.He added: “We decided a plan a couple of months ago and confirmed the plan once we saw Germany against Spain, Brazil and their final preparation game against Saudi Arabia in Leverkusen, a game that I watched live.”We prevented them from playing a top, top game. We put a lot of pressure on them and made their lives very tough and very difficult.”I think we can go far, yes. I think it’s too soon to say we can win the World Cup. But watching the other games and seeing the way we performed yesterday I honestly think we can compete against any team.”last_img read more

2003 finances generally positive despite precarious budget UN official says

“We have a better news situation,” the Under-Secretary-General for Management Catherine Bertini told a press briefing at UN Headquarters in New York. Summing up figures for 2003, she said that more Member States were paying their debts in the year in which they were owed. Meanwhile, peacekeeping cash should remain at a comfortable level – with 2003 payments and credits exceeding new assessments – although shortages in some UN missions existed and debt to Member States was expected to increase.Regarding the indicators on unpaid assessments as of 2003, Ms. Bertini said the regular budget position had “slipped somewhat” with unpaid assessed contributions increasing despite more nations paying. The already precarious situation of the International Criminal Tribunals for Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia had gotten much worse, she noted, saying a handful of Member States accounted for over 86 per cent of the shortfall.While last year was first that the Organization had not had to borrow from the regular budget, the projection for the current year was that it might have to, Ms. Bertini said. Last year also saw a turnaround in the number of Member States paying regular budget assessments in full by the end of the year, with 131 countries having done so, breaking a negative trend since the number peaked at 141 in 2000.”A strong financial base is a prerequisite for the United Nations ability to carry out the many important tasks entrusted to it by Member States,” Ms. Bertini said, adding that improving the Organization’s financial situation remained a high priority for Secretary-General Kofi Annan. read more

Canadian dollar shakes off early losses as greenback loses momentum

Canadian dollar shakes off early losses as greenback loses momentum AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 7, 2013 4:23 pm MDT TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed higher Monday as commodity prices bounced off the lows of the session and the U.S. currency weakened.The loonie gained 0.14 of a cent to 101.45 cents US while the currency also continued to find lift from Friday’s much stronger then expected December employment report.The economy created 40,000 jobs last month. Economists thought that only about 5,000 positions would be turned out in December after job creation had surged by 59,000 in November.The loonie had been lower earlier in the day as the greenback strengthened against many other currencies on speculation that the U.S. Federal Reserve might end its bond-buying stimulus program in the second half of 2013.The American currency has strengthened in recent days after minutes from the Fed’s latest policy meeting last month showed a split over how long to continue the purchases. Some policy-makers have concerns that the continued bond purchases, known as quantitative easing, may destabilize the economy.The February crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange erased early losses and gained a dime to US$93.19 a barrel.March copper dipped two cents to US$3.69 a pound while February gold bullion shed $2.60 to US$1,646.30 an ounce.Traders also took in a move by global regulators to ease new rules obliging lenders to set capital aside. The so-called Basel III rules are a set of new international standards to make sure banks don’t fall back into the sort of trouble that caused the 2008 financial crash. On Sunday, the officials setting those rules delayed the date by which certain amounts of cash had to be readily available.Amid the biggest beneficiaries on equity markets were ailing Spanish banks, which some had feared would struggle to meet the new cash requirements. read more

19 Soybean Growers to Lead World Initiative for Soy in Human Health

Front row, from left: Ryan Cahoon, Roberta Simpson-Dolbeare, Dawn Scheier, Secretary George Goblish, Vice Chairman Levi Huffman, and Chairman Daryl Cates. Back row, from left: David Williams, Marypat Corbett, Matt Gast, Gerry Hayden, David Lueck, Jim Wilson, Treasurer Stan Born, Kurt Maurath, Tim Bardole and Bill Wykes. Not shown: Thomas Kentner, Jeff Lynn, Steve Reinhard and Ed Beaman.American Soybean Association (ASA) President Ron Moore confirmed 19 fellow soybean growers from across the nation to lead the ASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) Program Committee in 2017-18. The importance of their work in long-term market development was underscored on Aug. 10 when the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced U.S. farmers are expected to produce a record-high soybean crop this year at 4.38 billion bushels.“WISHH strives for long-term market development and is always looking over the hill to the next market for U.S. soy,” Moore said, while announcing the WISHH committee. Officers are: Chairman Daryl Cates (IL); Vice Chair Levi Huffman (IN); Treasurer Stan Born (IL); and Secretary George Goblish (MN).New WISHH Committee Members include: Matt Gast (ND), representing the North Dakota Soybean Council, and Gerry Hayden (KY) representing ASA. They will serve alongside soybean growers from 11 other states. Other new faces to the WISHH Committee include David Lueck (MO), United Soybean Board Director David Williams, a Michigan soybean grower, and U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) Chief Operations Officer Ed Beaman; all of these individuals will serve as ex-officio members of the committee. Returning WISHH Committee Members include the officers as well as Tim Bardole (IA); Ryan Cahoon (NC); Thomas Kentner (IL); Jeff Lynn (IL); Kurt Maurath (KS); Steve Reinhard (OH); Dawn Scheier (SD); Roberta Simpson-Dolbeare (IL); Jim Wilson (MI); and Bill Wykes (IL), representing ASA.Moore thanked retiring WISHH Committee Members Art Wosick (ND) and E.L. Reed (MO) as well as USSEC ex-officio member Marypat Corbett.“WISHH’s Program Committee’s leadership is important to U.S. soybean growers as well as the many companies and customers in developing countries that seek to use U.S. soy in livestock feeds and human foods,” Moore said. “Cooperative efforts between WISHH and these emerging economies increase opportunities for trade.”Cates added that WISHH leverages U.S. soybean farmer checkoff dollars 6 to 1.“And that’s just the beginning,” he said. “WISHH further multiplies Qualified State Soybean Board dollars through international private-sector partner investments. The right formula for trade grows markets for U.S. soy farmers, and at the same time, improves lives for people abroad. WISHH works with international companies and organizations that purchase U.S. soy. These buyers invest thousands of their own dollars to research and promote soy-based foods and feeds made with U.S. soy in emerging markets.”last_img read more
